Create a pattern on the left-hand grid. How could you extend your pattern on the right-hand grid?
What happens to the area and volume of 2D and 3D shapes when you enlarge them?
Explore the effect of combining enlargements.
Why not challenge a friend to play this transformation game?
Using a ruler, pencil and compasses only, it is possible to construct a square inside any triangle so that all four vertices touch the sides of the triangle.
Explain how the thirteen pieces making up the regular hexagon shown in the diagram can be re-assembled to form three smaller regular hexagons congruent to each other.
A circle is inscribed in an equilateral triangle. Smaller circles touch it and the sides of the triangle, the process continuing indefinitely. What is the sum of the areas of all the circles?
Can you find the missing length?
Explore the relationships between different paper sizes.
L triominoes can fit together to make larger versions of themselves. Is every size possible to make in this way?
Arrow arithmetic, but with a twist.
How can you use twizzles to multiply and divide?
These five clowns work in pairs. What is the same and what is different about each pair's faces?
Introduces the idea of a twizzle to represent number and asks how one can use this representation to add and subtract geometrically.
The first part of an investigation into how to represent numbers using geometric transformations that ultimately leads us to discover numbers not on the number line.
Use the grids to draw pictures to different scales.
Triangle ABC is equilateral. D, the midpoint of BC, is the centre of the semi-circle whose radius is R which touches AB and AC, as well as a smaller circle with radius r which also touches AB and AC. . . .
Prove Pythagoras' Theorem using enlargements and scale factors.
The points P, Q, R and S are the midpoints of the edges of a convex quadrilateral. What do you notice about the quadrilateral PQRS as the convex quadrilateral changes?
